Hofstettenchöpfli - Middle

The middle section of the Chöpfli is seldom visited, but has some worthwhile buttresses. Chrüz is the most Northerly and nearest to Flüh. Because of rare nesting birds, climbing is not allowed. Denkpause is the central and most impressive buttress to look at, and Grütli is the nearest to Hofstetten
